Salmon have not fired up yet in the Waimakariri River. Despite reports of good salmon catches in the main salmon rivers to the south. The lower Waimakariri River is still only producing a handful of salmon each day. February and March are usually the best months for this river so lets hope we see good numbers soon. The Waimakariri River is very low and clear with there having been very little rain this season.
